We follow our school’s ‘Written Calculation Policy’ when teaching calculation (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Each Friday we concentrate on developing children’s mental calculation skills through a session which has become known within school as ‘Mental Friday’.

During these sessions children complete ‘club sheets’, where they practise re-calling their multiplication and division facts at speed, working through the stages at their own pace.

Therefore, to support us with this, when completing any homework with your child please follow the same methods as we are teaching in school to avoid any confusion- a ‘Parents Guide to Written Calculation Methods’ is available on here or from the school office.
